Many people who are interested in terminating their marital relationship are unclear about the method of doing so. They ponder whether or not they should file for divorce or simply discuss a separation agreement with their spouse. The truth is that each case is different and what may be the best thing for you may not be the best thing for someone else. This is because some couples have severe communication difficulties which makes it nearly impossible to negotiate a separation agreement. Hiring legal counsel to negotiate these agreements may help to resolve important issues more expeditiously. Attorneys may not always be able to help the couple work out their issues however. In these cases, filing for divorce may be the only realistic way of terminating a marriage. As always, you should consult with an attorney to discuss your options in detail before making any decision on which method of matrimonial termination is best for you.
